Basis for a hiking vacation in Stelvio Parco Nazionale?

We are planning a 10-day trip in the Stelvio area mid September, maybe in Val dei Forni, but were wondering what the most beautiful valley is to 'use' as a basis, where we can stay in a preferably small village (rather than a larger town like Bormio). Anyone who has some insight on hiking vacations in the region?

1. Re: Basis for a hiking vacation in Stelvio Parco Nazionale?

On the Lombardia side there's only really Bormio and Livigno and they are pretty much of a muchness (ie ski resorts that are quite pleasant in summer).

Pejo in the Trentino sector is lovely (that's the old village - not the resort - Cogolo di Peio - that's further down the hill).

Otherwise the Vinschgau/Val Venosta probably offers the biggest choice of places that *aren't* ski resorts eg Prad am Stilfserjoch.

You might find parks.it worth checking out - as well as information about the park it has an excellent accommodation search engine:
